Of the approximately 3,000 different photographers active in New Jersey during the 19th century, more worked in Newark than any other place in New Jersey. Newark was also a center for photographic invention and manufacturing. In his slide lecture, Gary Saretzky will profile these pioneers, including Seth Boyden, Charlotte Prosch (the first woman daguerreotypist in New Jersey), Joseph Kirk and Hannibal Goodwin.
